About us

Our History


December 1, 2021, marked the 34-year anniversary of Catherine Edelman Gallery, a venue for contemporary fine art photography in Chicago. Since its founding in 1987, the gallery has established itself as one of the leading galleries in the US devoted to the exhibition of prominent living photographers, alongside new & young talent. The gallery showcases a broad range of subject matter, attracting both the seasoned collector and first-time buyer. Our website provides a wealth of information, including artist talks, interviews with art world professionals, and extensive educational material. To date, CEG has hosted more than 250 public exhibitions, featuring more than 200 artists.


On July 31, 2022 CEG closed its physical space and is now operating as an online gallery. We look forward to working closely with collectors, designers, museums and lovers of photography. Please contact Catherine Edelman catherine@edelmangallery.com  or call 312-266-2350 for all inquiries.
